Looks like everyone came up with some great recs! If you don't have time to download & burn any of them before the trip I suggest picking up a commercial copy of Steppin' Out With The Grateful Dead, England '72 and enjoy! This is probably my favorite live commercial release the band put out in the last few years. This is 4 CD's of primo Grateful Dead from 1972 and far better than Europe '72 IMHO. You couldn't go wrong with any of these shows people mentioned.

thanks skydawg...Steppin' Out With The Grateful Dead is one of the few from 72 that I don't have but I will pick it up on your recommendation.

I do like those strand lyceum shows...

Europe 72 reins SUPREME in all of Deadom. That's my opinion. Can't go wrong with any of the shows on that tour.

yeah, I agree europe 72 is probably the best tour of all time of the GD...I keep coming back to the lyceum 05-26-72 show...it really sounds like the GD played as if the last time they would play europe...supposedly the band was "drug-less" as ram rod made everybody get rid of their dope before they were to enter the states...I read somewhere that they burned a whole pile of it on the stage of lyceum at the soundcheck....read that somewhere

04-08-72 is really intense too...very good show

Leaving out Europe and the obvious, here are three not mentioned and easily overlooked:

1972-08-25 Berkeley Community Theatre
This is a Charlie Miller remaster of the SBD, released July 16, 2008. Sound quality here is really excellent, and the performances are uniformly wonderful. It's not as long or spacey as Veneta, has no Dark Star (but a fabulous Playin'), and is generally tighter throughout; perhaps as good as its more famous immediate successor, with different virtues. Unfortunately the tape runs out midway through set two, as Weir breaks into the then-infant Weather Report Suite.
http://www.archive.org/details/gd1972-08-25.sbd.miller.92840.sbeok.flac16

1972-09-10 Hollywood Palladium (w/ David Crosby)
This is a wonderful, sweet laid-back show, whose second set particularly shines. He's Gone just sparkles with Jerry's guitar and Truckin' is lively and tight. David Crosby sits in on Dark Star and stays through the end. Bertha's already underway when the recording begins; there are minor cuts, also, in Promised Land and Playing In The Band.
http://www.archive.org/details/gd72-09-10.sbd.patched.greenberg-powell.22793.sbeok.shnf

1972-09-16 Boston Music Hall
Relaxed jazz night in Boston. This incomplete SBD has very nice sound quality, with an exquisite 20-minute Playin' and near-half-hour Dark Star, both lively rather than spacey (they do get lost in the forest, but in a relatively nice place). The concluding Not Fade Away suite is happy, energetic, and near perfect.
SBD is at http://www.archive.org/details/gd72-09-16.psbd.unknown.6683.sbeok.shnf)
There's also a Matrix at http://www.archive.org/details/gd72-09-16.sbd.cotsman.9247.sbeok.shnf

Don't forget either 7/25-26/72 Portland Oegon. Both of these are mind blowers...

Along with the already mentioned: 8/27,5/11,5/26,7/26,4/14,9/28,5/23,5/16

Try 11/19 Hofheinz, 12/31 Winterland, 8/21 Berkeley, 5/7 Bickershaw, 8/24 Berkeley, 9/24 Waterbury, 7/18 Roosevelt - All have great chunks of genius!!

9-28-72 stands up to repeated listening, esp if you like Playin' and Other One sandwiches:

this show hardly makes it on anyone's list.the first set
may be slightly below par for 72 but the second set smokes.
give the P.I.T.B. a whirl.
